Commenting on the donation the Chair said: "We realise how vital a service the Air Ambulance is for the whole community and hope that this donation will make a difference to a future patient.”
"The speed of the helicopter means advance patient care is delivered in optimum time, with interventions including administering blood, inducing a coma, and advanced analgesia.”
The HEMS has been tasked on circa 3,500 missions since it started almost six years ago.
